I'm Nikki, a creative old soul who loves tea time, tip-toeing through gardens, mounds of books, swaying to records, watercolors, sunset walks with our three yorkies, and star-gazing with Paul. This blog carries snippets of my life with just us two (five with Rusty, Lucy, & Ethel) - I hope it brings you happiness as you snuggle in with something warm and delicious and begin reading. Enjoy, friends!

the blog!

If I had to choose:

Jane Austen

If any of you have had the chance to either read Pride & Prejudice or watch the 2005 film, you will most likely agree that every girl should have their own Mr. Darcy. If you have not had the pleasure of doing either, I hope you can appreciate the tiny insight into one of the most romantic love stories I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Thank you to Ashley, my dearest cousin, for being my model. Her love of reading, tea, and Jane Austen helped make this shoot seem almost like it was set back to the early 1800’s, where the story takes place.

Mr. Darcy’s proposal to Lizzy: “You have bewitched me body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.”
